Can't upload pictures on computer

I've had the M20 for several years, downloaded the ACDSee software, never had any problems. Now all of a sudden, when I plug the camera into the computer, the ACD opens, but the new pics on the camera won't appear like they used to. Tried to reload the softward, but the disk just stops after I select a language. Suggestions?

Which OS are you using? Could be lots of things - have you updated all of your software, including ACDSee, the camera drivers, and OS? Tried rebooting your computer?

Windows. Tried to update ACDSee, just tells me to load the disk, which doesn't do anything. Have no idea how to update the camera driver. Very clueless here. Why did it work yesterday, now today it doesn't?

Did you try rebooting? Most likely, the ACDSee "device detector" process crashed. In any event, more likely a software issue than hardware, unless perhaps years of plugging and unplugging the USB cable instead of using a card reader as most would recommend wore out the connector in the camera.

Have you updated windows recently? Try updating all of your software - acdsee, windows and the camera drivers (which should be available from Pentax).

It could also be the connection to the camera as Marc said. Maybe try it with a card reader. It's also possible that the memory card may be corrupted or damaged - did you try it with sa different card.
